Support Team Wheatsheaf As They Walk the Wight

Help raise money for the hospice by supporting Team Wheatsheaf

Support Team Wheatsheaf As They Walk the WightMany VB readers will remember the very sad passing of Kevin Mitchell earlier this year when he lost his battle against cancer.

Some of his close friends, Team Wheatsheaf, will be taking part in Walk the Wight again next month and this year dedicating their walk to Kevin’s memory.

Kevin was cared for at The Earl Mountbatten Hospice before he died and the team are hoping to raise as much cash for the hospice as they can.

With the downturn in the economy and fewer legacies being left to the hospice, they need our help now more than ever.

Kevin Mitchell: Funeral Takes Place TodayWe understand that Kevin has raised thousands of pounds for cancer charities over the years with his Laughter Through Tears Theatre Company, so the team say that they’d like to “do him proud by raising as much as we can.”
